Juhannus in Finland

The Finnish Midsummer by the lake blogger Findianlife

In Finland we celebrate midsummer when cities are empty as people flee to their summer houses located in the woods. “Juhannus” is celebrated with family and friends accompanied with good food, sauna, swimming in the lake, drinking and having a great time. The Finnish summer is not complete without the midsummer and normally people start their summer holidays from this celebration. The Midsummer is celebrated because it’s the time of the year in Finland when the day and night are equally long. So sunshine is plenty here and I’ve had some trouble sleeping due to the sun being “up” all night long.

We, too, had the privilege to spend some time at a summer house by the lake. It was super cold and rainy as well, but in Finland we will be outdoors no matter the weather conditions, because it’s SUMMER! 😀

It was raining so we tried to save the poor salmon fillets by holding an umbrella on them 😀

I think the water temperature was about 13 degrees. First we get hot in the sauna and then take a dip in the lake.
